Re: POE is IOS dependant or Hardware Dependent

POE is hardware and software dependent, but any hardware with POE capabilities should be running IOS to support it.

Hope this helps. If so, please rate the post.

Hi Michel,

The PoE functionality is primarily Hardware based. Have a look at the following list for the 3550, and note the ** for the PoE supported version;

The Cisco Catalyst 3550 Series Intelligent Ethernet Switches include the following configurations:

Catalyst 3550-24 Switch-24 10/100 ports and two Gigabit Interface Converter (GBIC)-based Gigabit Ethernet ports; 1 rack unit (RU)

**Catalyst 3550-24 PWR Switch-24 10/100 ports with integrated inline power and two GBIC-based Gigabit Ethernet ports; 1 RU

Catalyst 3550-24-DC Switch-24 10/100 ports and two GBIC-based Gigabit Ethernet ports; 1 RU; DC-powered

Catalyst 3550-24-FX Switch-24 100FX ports and two GBIC-based Gigabit Ethernet ports; 1 RU

Catalyst 3550-48 Switch-48 10/100 ports and two GBIC-based Gigabit Ethernet ports; 1 RU

Catalyst 3550-12G Switch-10 GBIC-based Gigabit Ethernet ports and two 10/100/1000BASE-T ports; 1.5 RU

Catalyst 3550-12T Switch-10 10/100/1000BASE-T ports and two GBIC-based Gigabit Ethernet ports; 1.5 RU

From this doc;
